    fresh chopped onion?

    If a recipe calls for, say, 2 T chopped onions - do I use 2 T flakes?How many flakes in "one small onion, chopped?"

    Sometimes my wife would just put the dry flakes into a recipe. Other times she would re-hydrate(?) them before adding. In that case is a T of re-hydrated flakes the same as a T of freshly chopped?

    I helped my late wife around the kitchen for years but, obviously, never really paid attention.

    Thanks for any help.

    This probably won't help but will post it anyway. This is for minced dried onion. Maybe someone will know if it would be the same or have the right answer for you.
    Fresh = dried
    1 cup = 1/4cup
    1/4 cup = 1 tbsp
    1 tbsp = 3/4 tsp
    1 tsp + 1/4 tsp

    1 Tablespoon flakes = 1/4 cup chopped onion. I would use a little less than 1 teaspoon of flakes, I think.
